3.68/5 rDev -1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Arrives with a clear amber color capped by a nice head that leaves a curtain of lace
Smell: Caramel, figs, raisins along with hints of candied orange and vanilla
Taste: Caramel and dark fruit, up front, with a developing herbal, candied orange aspect; after the swallow, the sweetness becomes a bit cloying, though there is some offset from the herbal flavors
Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation
Overall: This beer has some interesting elements bu the full package clashes rather than complements
Serving type: on-tap

3.99/5 rDev +6.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Glass Used: Nonic pint
Appearance: Cloudy amber with suspended particles (should have read the descriptive note from SA's site to avoid this). About an inch and a half marshmallow creme colored head. Minimal lacing. The foam dissipated quick leaving a ring around the glass behind. Carbonation trickles up from the bottom in spots.
Smell: Lots of malt, caramel, apple, raisin, hints of what smells like oak and booze.
Taste: Wow, pretty close to the nose. Strong malts and sweet fruits with a soft sweet alcohol and caramel finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium, borderline high-low mouthfeel. A bit of tacky coating lines the mouth after the swallow. Carbonation is very low.
Overall: I find this offering from Saint Arnold pretty damn tasty. I love the malt and caramel sweetness throughout. If I had a chance to score another DR12 I would take it.
Serving type: bottle
